How can I stop my children watching inappropriate television programmes?

With so many TV channels and programmes, it can be difficult to monitor what children are watching all the time.

There will be things you don’t want your child to see but there are ways to ensure you child enjoys a safe TV experience.

Many digital TV providers allow you to set controls which restrict specific channels or programmes.

If you are unsure how to activate your parental control features – or if you want to see whether  your TV system has such a facility – check the TV system instructions booklet.

You can also phone your service provider, check their website or check with the original retailer.
